Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
You can file a lawsuit for FMLA retaliation. Right now, if you have not been fired or demoted, your only damage would be for emotional distress, and so it may not be worth the large investment of time or money to pursue a claim. But assume you are terminated or demoted and suffer a concrete financial loss of some sort, at that point you would have a more valuable claim
Either way, many attorneys would likely be willing to accept a case like yours on a contingency fee basis. If you don't know, contingency representation is where the attorney does not charge anything up front, just a percentage of your award or settlement if there is a recovery. That percentage is typically around 33%. To locate an attorney to represent you, see here.
